The Archer is a prototype for a new chain of boutique hotels (two more are already being built in Texas and California). Which means the staff is working doubly hard to make the case that this is a worthwhile venture. My guess is that some of the amenities the Archer currently has—like the high-end, free treats left on the pillow at turn-down (every evening it’s something different)—may ultimately be eliminated to save money. But hey, you’ll get them now, along with decent-for-NYC pricing (think mid-$200s usually) in a hotel that was custom-built and opened in summer of 2014. Rooms tend to be, er, intimate, but they’re well-designed, with space under the duvet-draped beds for luggage; two-sided minifridges (so that guests can store whatever they want in one side); and a handsome decor of exposed brick, leather headboards, and print drapes. Rooms on the higher floors have excellent views of the Empire State Building; the room service and on-site restaurant is from celeb chef David Burke.
